Cindi Bigelow, Third Generation CEO
“Keeping up with today’s forms of communication is essential to be a success in the marketplace. Social media has become a critical piece of today’s corporate strategy, but a company must do two things first before it embarks in this direction.
First, the top executive has to understand and believe 100% that this is right for him/her and the company. Second, you have to find the RIGHT partner.
As a family company, I knew how important it was to establish a direct relationship with our customers. I knew how important it was to give them a chance to know the family as well as it was for us to truly hear what they have to say. But we could not have ever achieved the success we have accomplished in this arena without the support and commitment of Valorie and the Creative Concepts team.
Valorie and her team have been the perfect partners. They got to know us, know what we stand for, understand where we want to go and then strategically built the appropriate profiles, managed those networks that touch our consumers and from there created numerous campaigns (since 2006) that have delighted old and new Bigelow Tea consumers.
I think about what we have been able to do digitally and I know that we could never have done it without Creative Concepts by our side.”
Barbara Benton, Vice President Marketing
“Creative Concepts is a remarkable agency to work with! Valorie, founder and CEO of Creative Concepts, presented a clear plan and provided real projections for our social media and PR outreach and campaigns. She and her team stayed on schedule daily/weekly/monthly, and delivered on our awareness build for PROXI products. Valorie dramatically improved our Social Media strategy and messaging, developed and guided a PR plan for our key markets, and reinvented and ran our blog. She and her team were able to kick off all those projects within just weeks. Within the first month we had blogger reviews and interaction which allowed us to reach our target demographic. Within the second month, we saw traction from Creative Concepts’ PR outreach. Using Creative Concepts even generated a cost savings for our online monitoring. Valorie is the rare individual who has all the best qualities of delivering on her proposed and agreed upon social media strategy, agency expertise, organization, and enthusiasm for the Brand.”
Kipling Wagner, National Communications and Social Media Manager
“Valorie and her team are top-shelf in every possible sense. We started working with Creative Concepts when we made the jump into Social Media in 2009 and we’ve never looked back. Valorie is thoughtful, creative, resourceful and whip-smart. I couldn’t make a more emphatic recommendation for an agency or an individual.”
Patrick Campbell, Marketing Director
“Creative Concepts has been a great partner for the Ouidad brand as we have expanded our presence, dialogue, and relationships with our customers in social media. They have created an amazing blog for ouidad.com that adds rich relevant content, search driven traffic, and discussions with our customers. They have delivered creative ideas and content for our site and for other marketing programs. And they have provided great advice on how to make our social networking programs stronger.”

“Thanks for inviting us to Ecover’s ‘Bringing Earth Day Home’ event where we got to showcase our bed, mattress and linens. It was amazing to see how well organized this event was. Your team managed all the details with ease. I felt like your reminders kept us on track, without them I would have been overwhelmed. The venue was perfect for this contemporary audience. The food was as sophisticated as the tone of the evening. From walk through to final execution I was blown away by the professionalism you and your staff demonstrated. Ecover is very fortunate to have you promoting their brand.”
